Strong Epiphany …..


Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel sad that I’m short on money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents didn’t give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today I can complain because I have to go to school oreagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can appreciate that I have a place to call home.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

Today I can fall out and scream because one of my kids is choosing not to do the right thing or be happy they are alive and hold onto my faith.

What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!

A Healhty Mind Set


If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win but you think you can’t, it’s almost a cinch you wont.
For out in the world you’ll find success begins with a persons will.
It’s all in the state of Mind.

Think big, and your deeds will grow;
Think small and you fall behind.
Think that you can, and you will.
It’s all in your state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before you can ever win a prize.
Life’s battle doesn’t always go to the stronger or faster one;
But sooner or later, the one who wins is the person who thinks they can.

Speaking Life To Your Kids……


Self-respect cannot be hunted.  It cannot be purchased.  It is never for sale. …..It cannot be fabricated out of public relations.  It comes to us when we are
alone, in quiet moments, in quiet places, when e suddenly realize that, knowing the good, we have done it; knowing the beautiful, we have served it; knowing the
truth we have spoken it.

Respect your efforts, respect yourself.  Self-respect leads to self-discipline and when you have both firmly under your belt, that’s real power! If you want to be respected by others the great thing is to respect yourself.  Only by that, only by self-respect will you compel others to respect you as well….

Lastly…… ( for the moment )  ……………….

It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make ends for them.  To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere
to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character…

Wisdom is Beautiful…..


In life we face many challenges. Some are great and some are small. When we consider the many areas that affect our lives, such as our health, family, finances and spirituality, wisdom is something that we all need.

Wisdom is defined as learning acquired over a period of time : b: ability to see beneath the surface of things :c: good sense : : a wise attitude, belief, or course of action according to Merriam Webster dictionary.

The ability to make the best informed decision at any given time can save us and our families much pain and heartache. The Bible King James Version states Proverbs 4:7 as follows… “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore, get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” This scripture tells us that first we need to recognize the importance of wisdom. It is vital to our very existence.

The ending part of Proverbs 4:7 states, “That with all thy getting get an understanding.” It does absolutely no good to hear information but not understand it enough to apply it to your life in the situations that you face. In essence it’s useless. For example how many times have we sat in a classroom or a meeting and the lecturer has presented information and they ask if anyone has questions please raise your hand? No one raised their hand, but soon as they leave the meeting they find themselves asking others, “What are we supposed to do” or “How are we supposed to do it,” that was not a wise decision. When we consider the affects that our actions and decisions can have on our lives we must practice wise choices.

Knowing that I have the ability to gain knowlege and little nuggets from several people from all ages and walks of life is a blessing…………  Don’t’ be neglectful to search the scriptures, communicate with other knowledgeable people and to pray to God for direction that is needed to handle your life situations and circumstances.

Celebrate Where You Are –


I’m a firm believer in living life to its fullest. Yes, I get caught up in work sometimes, but can enjoy life with friends and family. I work on not stressing about money, savings, and bills. Take each day and embrace it, love it, love others, have fun and smile! Don’t hold back!

My advice is don’t think or speak negative.  For a few weeks now, I have been encouraging women I come in contact and dramatic changes have come to pass in their lives as a result.

I want to encourage you not to confess your negatives. Confess AND celebrate the accomplishment of that which appears to be impossible.  Confess that you are a success. Confess AND celebrate that you like people and people like you. Confess AND celebrate that you are flowing in God’s love, and that other people are being blessed through your life.

Get all excited! Today, speak positive faith confessions to yourself, your family and your friends.  Expect the impossible to flow like never before. Your life will never be the same again. Remember, nothing negative!…..no matter how much you THINK it will help!

Helping Others….


If you don’t ask the right questions…you can never discover the answers which will move your life in the direction of possibility and purpose. What’s the ONE (?) question that you are holding yourself accountable to answer with your life choices today?
A great deal of people think that age ALWAYS plays a huge part in how individuals react to negative circumstances but that is not the case. It is imperative that we all, NO MATTER WHAT THE AGE have “accountability partners” to help direct us and keep our actions / motives / choices in tact.
“Are you the cause or the effect? Are you the engine or the caboose? Are you making history or watching history be made? Are you the one everyone is talking about or one of those doing the talking? Are you the thermostat or the thermometer? I love to teach these types of strategies to others who may fell that they are  in a tight spot and they need to know that hope is right around the corner. I can say this due to MY OWN crazy and heart wrenching experiences over the years….
Your life has an special purpose that only you can fulfill. It’s not a game….it’s your life. Take a leap of faith and move forward as if you could not fail. State your daily goals, and create forward momentum in your life.
Every day affirm to yourself that there is no emotion that you cannot handle, no difficulty that you cannot surmount, and no challenge that you cannot tackle. Face the future confidently – knowing that you were born for such a time as this!
Are you making things happen or waiting to see what happens? It is your life…play big but safe!”

Friday’s Note 2 Myself


Accept your present condition. Adversity is a part of life and beyond your control. Manage your response to the situation. Handle negative emotions by focusing on the positive.

Move forward by making a decision to trying another option. Bad situations make it easy to give up and accept our present circumstances. Be persistent and face the problem head on in order to grow and progress past it.

Stay optimistic. Negative emotions, worrying and being angry makes the bad situation appear grim. To find a solution to the problem look for the humor in it and reflect on how it could have been worse.

Learn from the experience. Triumphing through adversity can make you more successful and resilient in the future. Write down your thoughts and insights into your feelings. Make notes of lessons learned about yourself and your inner strength.
